Will turn 22 on
What she’s done since last summer
- Won her first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros

- Made her Top 10 debut
- Swiatek is at a career-high ranking of No. 9
Iga Swiatek came of age as a teenager on the terre battue, blasting her way to a maiden major title at an already-historic Roland Garros last fall. Swiatek has since seamlessly integrated into the top tier of women’s tennis, winning her second career title in Adelaide after a second straight fourth-round appearance at the Australian Open.
Where her peers attempt to bludgeon opponents with a flatter ball, the 20-year-old employs wicked spin off both sides that can completely change the dimensions of the court.
